Yeh I don’t agree with the stance “we haven’t seen a shutdown via legal challenge yet so I’m happy to just hang and wait and see what happens...”. Sorry but many people running keyservers aren’t businesses but rather private individuals and can not afford to risk ANY possible legal action. Once you hear from an attorney, the stakes go up and that’s too much a risk to bear.

I asked to be allowed to share some more details, however the request
was to remove/prevent indexing of 2 keys stored on our keyservers -
including copies of ID's to verify the request as required by the
european data protection law. Since it is not possible to prevent the
indexing of data, I think the only possible way to handle this request
is to shut them down. I don't see a reason to fight this - it is the
right of someone to get his/her data removed so we are required to do
this regardless of how crappy that law might be. If someone decides to
ignore it, it's up on them.
